The office of the Deputy President has become the major casualty as Treasury CS Henry Rotich seeks to raise funds to finance the repeat presidential election.

The IEBC had requested a whopping Sh12 Billion which will be used in running the October 26 polls.

State House will also lose Sh197million in the financial reorganization process. Other funds will be raised through borrowing that will further escalate the country’s debt, and from the Parliamentary Service Commission.

Rotich’s supplementary budget has also addressed free secondary school education and mitigation of the drought that faces parts of the country.

The Jubilee government had promised to offer free secondary education beginning in January 2018 but did not allocate funds in the annual budget approved by Parliament in June.
